Poem: "Dandelion"


Dandelion
By: Eve Estelle

Springtime arrives with a rekindled fire,
Breathe the air fresh like New Year's Day;
Feel the warmth of the sun's ire,
Awakening once more the flowers of May.
Birdsong echoes through a sky that shines blue,
Joyful voices, but they aren't you -
The grass glows a brilliant green,
And I smile when I see those Irish daisies,
The golden manes that grow to fly;
Descendants of summers I fear are by.

    1. I know right? People love to treat their lawns for dandelions, but I've never really understood why (unless they were taking over the lawn lol). I've always thought they were kind of a nice addition. Sure, not the prettiest little things ever, but what a nice contrast their yellow color makes to green grass! Thank you!

    3. LOL. :) To each his own! I do actually see why some don't like them, but you know what, it's less work when you don't mind them in your yard!

  5. This was so pretty! I love the line about New Year's Day- I do wish New Years was around springtime, it would make so much more sense than the middle of desolation and death (AKA winter).

    1. You know, it would. Even just the end of winter, when it's closer to spring than it is to the beginning of the cold seasons. But smack dab in the middle of all that frigid snow? lol. I'm not complaining, though - I personally love winter! Thank you Julia! :)
